On their first two albums, Led Zeppelin issued a relentless assault of heavy blues and rockabilly riffs, and Led Zeppelin III provided the band with the necessary room to grow musically. While there are still a handful of metallic rockers, III is built on a folky, acoustic foundation which gives the music extra depth. And even the rockers aren't as straightforward as before - the galloping "Immigrant Song" is powered by Plant's banshee wail, "Celebration Day" turns blues-rock inside out with a warped slide guitar riff, and "Out on the Tiles" lumbers along with a tricky, multi-part riff. Nevertheless, the heart of the album lies on the second side, when the band delves deeply into English folk. "Gallows Pole" updates a traditional tune with a menacing flair, and "Bron-Y-Aur Stomp" is an infectious acoustic romp, while "That's the Way" and "Tangerine" are shimmering songs with graceful country flourishes. The band hasn't left the blues behind, but the twisted bottleneck blues of "Hats Off to (Roy) Harper" actually outstrips the epic "Since I've Been Loving You", which is the only time Zeppelin sounds a bit set in their ways.

Impressive sound quality, rich with very little surface noise. Robust packaging for the oveseas delivery with the vinyl flat. Much relieved as my last purchase was the Who's Who's Next LP which is very poor. Bit pricey now but worth it.


Led Zeppelin Has Never Sounded So Amazing

Just got this in the mail today from Acoustic Sounds. If your worried about paying big $'s for this to be shipped forget it because Acoustic Sounds sends this to you in a cardboard vault that looks & feels indestructible. Pressing looks like it was manufactured last week A+++ condition. I couldn't be happier until my wife & I put this on the turntable. I have never heard any vinyl sound as rich and powerful as this pressing. The soundstage & depth of detail from this pressing are monumental to us as listeners. We were skeptical about paying this much for any vinyl but because it was Led Zeppelin we figured "what the heck". Plant's vocals are rich & powerful, Page's guitar has a "realistic" transparent sound especially the raw acoustic parts, Bonham's drums sound exquisitely deep & clear. Let's not forget John Paul Jones on bass it is much clearer & deep than the original. We are definitely buying more of these pressings before they are all gone. Worth the money!!!

Pressing, Packaging, Sonics: III Indeed!

This is my first Classic Zep album, and at under $100 (at time of writing), one of the last remaining "bargains" in the catalog. None of the LZ catalog is really reference material, but III stands as one of the best-sounding re-issues in the series. Soundstaging is deep & wide, and detail retrieval is the best I've ever heard for this title. Others have said it better, but the pressing on this disc was clean, quiet, and flawless; the thick gatefold packaging is high-class right down to the "spinning wheel" cover, and the sonics beat any other option out there...unless it's hiding under a rock. This really is a true bargain! It WILL only go up; if you're wanting one, don't wait!


MUST HAVE.

Another must own from Classic Records. If you are Zeppelin fan and love this record than this is the version to own. Don't wait. The price will go up and then it will sold out and gone for good.


Holy Crap...

Great music from a monstrous band. I hope they tour next year - it would be a revelation to all those who post-date the band. SA


As good as it was 35 years ago

Has it been that long? Well yes. So thanks to the people who put these out again on such awesome vinyl. The cover was just like the original--and so was the thrill of opening a new album and playing it for the first time. Made me feel like a kid again.


Absolutly Stunning!

This is my first Zeppelin LP and certainly not my last. III is where Zeppelin really hit me in the gut and made me realize they were not to be reckoned with. I've only owned them on CD prior to this, but songs like Babe I'm Going to Leave You are exquisite, Tangerine builds more powerfully then I've ever heard it before... Simply amazing. I'm going to make it a point to go through and purchase the rest of these LPs when I can afford them and hope they don't all go out of print before I'm done!
